October Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

The months of September and October (so far) have proven to be quite active for our club. September 24 brought our 37th Annual Mustang and All Ford Show once again to West Wilson Middle School, Mt. Juliet, TN. For all of you who came and participated as volunteers, many THANKS! A very special THANKS to our Show Chairs, Tim and Kim Forkum. All of you once again made this annual event a fun time for all that attended. We had over 150+ cars in attendance and a record crowd of visitors. The day was gorgeous and hot and encouraged all there to eat and drink, which made the West Wilson Middle School football team happy since they were the recipients of all food/drink proceeds.

Our sincere thanks to our primary sponsor of this event, O’REILLY AUTO PARTS as well as our two secondary sponsors, TWO RIVERS FORD and STREETSIDE CLASSICS.

O’Reilly’s provided trophies, dash plaques and subsidized the food purchase for the Football Team enabling them to enjoy all proceeds free and clear. Without the support of these sponsors, our net revenue for the show of $3321.00 would not have been possible. Our monies will be donated to fund our Phil Utley Memorial / MCMC Endowed Scholarship Fund at Middle Tennessee State University.

In addition to these primary sponsors, our Club enjoyed the sponsorship of numerous other vendors and supporters. We invite you to support our sponsors – a listing of all sponsors is part of this newsletter.

A fun event this year at the Show was the formalization of our “Club Best of Show Awards.” We requested all in attendance to come by the Club Member’s Only Row and vote for their favorite ride. Thanks to Randy Pickens for preparing the five awards. The Club winners selected by the public vote this year were: Ray Moore 1965 GT Fastback; Pat Taylor 2010 Shelby GT500; Patricia Taylor 1965 Fastback: Jeff Billings 1967 GT Convertible; and Billy Beasley 1965 Convertible. Congratulations to all of you – looking forward to competing again next year.

The week following this event, October 1, found the MCMC members hosting and participating at the 4th Annual Dickson Fly-In / Cruise-In event at Dickson airport, Dickson, TN. Our thanks to Jim Chism, Event Chair for setting this up as a MCMC sponsored event each year.

Although the weather was not very cooperative for the show (imagine from absolute total heat the weekend before to all of us wearing “hoodies” at the airshow) it was a fun event with numerous planes and cars on display. Our facebook page is full of pictures from these two events. We invite you to take a look and come enjoy the festivities with us next year!!

Upcoming Events:
Our upcoming event, High Speed Fun-Coming Home at the Nashville Superspeedway is shaping up to be a great event. Based on early registration, we should have a sold out event. This event requires lots of volunteers, so please be ready to assist on October 22 – early start, probably 6:30 a.m.! More discussion at the Club meeting on October 20. A flyer is attached as part of this newsletter – please show and share with friends.

We are considering a Fall Foliage drive in Williamson County on October 29. More details on this event will be shared at the October 20 Club meeting as well as via emails.

Remember, all it takes to plan an outing, drive or event is an email to Randy Pickens ( or me ( with (1) where you are going; (2) type of event; (3) time, place and date to meet – we will make sure that all Club members are notified.

Speaking of upcoming events, we have two internal events that need to be addressed in October and November. First, at the October 20 club meeting, nominees for the Gary Alsobrook club member award must be turned in to me. The Board will evaluate all nominations and the recipient will be announced at the November Club meeting. By a separate email on Wednesday last week I forwarded to all active members the nominating ballot as well as instructions on how to complete. Please bring your nominee ballot to the meeting.

Secondly, a new slate of board members for the 2017 – 2019 term need to be selected. The selection process is being handled by Randy Pickens and Kevin Davenport. They will share more information with you at our October 20 meeting. In essence, all active club members may nominate themselves or someone else to the Board. You will be asked to nominate 9 members to the Board as well as the position that they should hold. The positions are: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and five At-Large members for a total of nine (9) Board positions. Existing Board members may run or be nominated for re-election. All votes will be cast and counted at the November Club meeting. Please keep in mind that all members of the Board of Directors must be active members of our Club as well as the MCA National Club.

Should there be other events anyone wishes to post on our webpage, please send dates and information to Jeff Billings at and to our newsletter editor, Jay Arnold at

All must be in Jay’s in-box no later than the Saturday prior to our monthly Club meeting (or sooner) in order to be inserted in the newsletter.
